The goal and scope of this Community Group is to produce a JavaScript
Speech API. [1]  Extensions to SRGS, SISR and SSML should be considered
beyond the scope of this CG, and I agree with Milan that such suggestions
should be routed through the Voice Browser Working Group.

Also, note that SpeechRecognitionEvent can return interim results
("hypothesis" events), which could be used for multimodal interactions.

Finally, some options on the naming that we might consider:

- SpeechRecognition / SpeechSynthesis

- SpeechRecognizer / SpeechSynthesizer

- SpeechToText / TextToSpeech

These obviously vary in length and ease-of-spelling. They may also vary in
intuitive clarity to those less immersed in speech technology than many of
us are (and also to those for whom English is not their native language).
